Direct reaction of K2MCl4 (M=Pt or Pd) with acetamide leads reproducibly to complexes which can be formulated as [Pt(C2H4ON)2Cl]n and Pd4(C2H4ON)7(OH)2. Analytical and spectroscopic (i.r., n.m.r. and e.p.r.) data support the existence of polynuclear structures involving bridging ligands and partially oxidized metal centres.
